How does one get started with Twitter (or Jaiku for that matter)? I've
spent some time investigating, but there seems to be a pretty big hump
to get over just setting up friends lists, etc. Also, SMS costs money.
I may sound like an out-of-it old fogey here but the overall usefulness
of micro-blogging doesn't exactly hit me right between the eyes. Is
there a secret sauce?
